Happy holidays, and all the best of the season!

Squash in town

We are continuing to explore two potential timelines: (1) finding a solution for courts as soon as possible and (2) building towards a sustainable and long-term solution for squash courts.

 If you would like any information, or would like to help in any way, send an email to

(1)  the short term solution may include the courts at TRU (as long as the courts exist, they will be a target of interest for the sport), or building courts in any space with adequate height, or both (opening the TRU courts will provide benefit to the students and the larger community but they won’t meet the need for courts in town)
(2) the long-term solution may involve building a facility on public land, for a more sustainable future for the sport.

The City’s Recreation Master Plan was adopted by council at a meeting on December 10th. Linda Stride presented the Plan to council, and mentioned squash and cricket as two sports lacking facility space in town.
For those who didn’t get a chance to watch the proceedings, the meeting can be found online here:
Linda’s presentation starts at 42:00 minutes and runs through to 1:11:00, and in case you’d like to get directly to the squash part and save the rest for viewing later, that part runs from 57:35 to 58:15 in the video.
PSA Squash

The WSF Mens World Team Event just wrapped up - you can find many highlights online , inlcuding this one:
Makin vs Momen, this is a short clip, one rally, with some amazing retrieving by Makin:
And this video was just posted, a free full match between Farag and Coll from the British Open:

We will be starting some fundraising in the new year, probably initially through restaurant or pub dinners, to raise funds and also to show our commitment and intent. If you have ideas or would like to help in any way, email or phone 250-314-9600.

Out-of-town Squash

There will be players traveling out of town (to Salmon Arm and Vernon, and possibly farther afield) to play this winter, until we can access courts here. If you are interested, email to share info on car-pooling and times.

Merry Christmas
Happy New Year!
